Episode 11: Photos that Pop! Plus, Fabric-Covered Canvases

June 2nd, 2010

Welcome to Episode 11 of “The DIY Dish!” This is our last “official” episode before Summer, but we aren’t going away entirely. Keep reading and you’ll find out our summer schedule, learn about our new craft DVD for you and your children to watch and do together, and when Season 2 will begin. We also have a fantastic giveaway thanks to our Episode 11 sponsor, One2One Network!

This week’s episode is about pictures that pop! Not only will you be able to use this technique with your favorite photographs, but also with jewelry and even coasters! Yes, we took another trip to the hardware store for this project, and we’re showing you how to make these really fun and unique mosaic photos. And you’re going to be using bathroom tiles to help out!

*Note: If you use this idea on coasters, we recommend using the “Outdoor Mod Podge” since it is water-resistant.

This week’s episode is made possible by the amazing company known as One2One Network.  Do you love sharing news about a fantastic product you just found?  Would you like to test new products out on the market such as music, film, TV shows, live events, or other useful services? And when you do, would you like to share what you think with your friends, co-workers, and others?  If you do, you just might love the opportunity to be a part of the One2One Network of socially-active women. 

Some of One2One projects include reviewing and promoting such people as oh….Michael Buble, Harry Connick Jr., and Yanni Voices just to name a few! Wow!  They’ve also worked with companies such as Epson, Warner Brothers, Disney, and the WNBA. It is free to join. It has great perks. And it’s a whole lot of fun. Just ask Kris! She knows from personal experience and we’re thrilled that One2One Network is sponsoring this week’s episode and giveaway of “The DIY Dish!”

This week’s episode features a fun technique that can be used in all kinds of projects! We’d love to hear your ideas for them too!  Here are a few photos for inspiration…

We know you’re busy this summer, so our episodes will be shorter in length and will appear every 2 weeks throughout the summer months.  We’ll then kick off our Season 2 this Fall!

And if you are a parent, grandparent, aunt, friend, or teacher looking for some fun projects to do with the kids this summer, you may just be interested in a new DVD we have coming out very soon.  We cover all kinds of beginning sewing and craft projects for families to do together and have 20 projects to share! Themes include nature/camping, cooking, patriotism, and the garden. We can’t wait to share them with you so keep watching. They’ll be here soon!
